Kassy Tayler's dystopian steampunk series gives readers a look inside a post-global warming world where society exists inside a protective underground enclosure known as "the dome." When teen heroine Wren's friend successfuly escapes the dome, Wren is curious about what life outside her safe enclosure holds. With series second, the RT Top Pick! rated Shadows of Glass, releasing tomorrow, we asked the author to reflect upon the theme of escape in YA and what getting out of the dome means for Wren.
Even though I have not read the book, I have to admit I am very excited about the new TV series by Stephen King, The Dome because I want to see how they manage to escape it in the end. In my new Young Adult series, escape from a dome is foremost on my heroine’s mind. Especially when she finds out that she’s been lied to her entire life and that her entire society has been lied to for the past 200 years.
